Sailing: 39 Nations Qualify After 2014 World Sailing Championships

138 out of the 274 available boats in sailing for the 2016 Summer Olympics were handed out during the 2014 World Sailing Championships held from September 8th to September 21st 2014. Roughly half of the quotas for all 10 sailing events were given out to the top ranked nations. While some nations may have sent multiple sailors to compete in the same event a nation can only qualify one boat per each event. Also Brazil is unable to qualify any boats here due to being the host nation and already qualified in all events.

France finished on top of the medal table by winning three events; the men’s RS:X, women’s RS:X and the mixed Nacra 17. Netherlands finished second by winning the men’s laser and women’s laser radial events. While Australia and Great Britain won four medals the only gold medal came from the men’s 470 and men’s finn respectively. Other gold medals went to Austria (women’s 470), New Zealand (men’s 49er) and Brazil (women’s 49er FX).

In total 39 different nations from all five continents qualified at least one boat. France, Great Britain and New Zealand were the only nations to qualify all 10 boats. Other big qualifiers include Denmark, Italy and Netherlands whom qualified 7 boats and Australia who qualified 6. Below is a list of qualified nations by event.
